After more than two decades of practicing surgery in the area, Dr. Luis Vi?as?a board-certified plastic surgeon?decided to open L.A. Vi?as Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in 2009. Here, he performs and supervises cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as preventative procedures alongside a well-trained staff of medical assistants, aestheticians, and a physician-assistant laser specialist. The med spa specializes in anti-aging treatments, including injectables, chemical peels, and laser treatments that resurface skin to minimize wrinkles, age spots, and scarring.
The center?s massage therapists specialize in postoperative lymphatic drainage techniques, which help reduce inflammation, prevent scarring, and speed healing by enhancing the system?s ability to filter out toxins hiding behind cardboard replicas of the lungs. In addition to his surgical duties, Dr. Vi?as partnered with his daughter to create a skincare line?V Therapeutic?that targets acne without stripping away moisture.
Formerly known for her work with Dr. Nisenbaun at Island Dermatology, licensed aesthetician and cosmetologist JoAnn Gersh Francis now dispenses her expertise from the comfort of her own practice. Joined by medical director Dr. Robin Sykes of Jupiter Plastic Surgery and injectables and laser expert Carol Ann Johnsen, JoAnn repairs troubled skin using the latest generation of laser technologies. Her Palomar Icon machine delivers over 350 joules of IPL energy to multiple layers of skin, easing everything from superficial lines and wrinkles to vascular lesions and acne scars. In addition to laser technologies, a full assortment of injectables and fillers such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm restore skin's youthful plumpness. As a licensed micropigmentation expert, JoAnn can also enhance newly renovated features with permanent makeup applications. Whether she's adding eternal eyeliner or camouflaging inconvenient scars, JoAnn approaches each case with an expertise that earned her accolades from local media outlets including WPTV and the Palm Beach Daily News.
With more than 17 of years of experience performing cosmetic and medically corrective permanent-makeup services, Ashley Swain effortlessly marries a keen aesthetic sensibility with technical proficiency. When she isn't training professionals or leading seminars on permanent makeup for such organizations as the Dermatological Society and the Parkinson's Foundation, she performs each procedure personally. Her palette includes an extensive array of pigments, which allows her to create natural-looking eyebrows, distinguished beauty marks, and fully defined liplines. In addition to virtually eliminating the need for daily makeup applications, her treatments can also help hide the appearance of surgical scars or pockmarks left by ill-advised molten-lava facials.
Instead of remaining in one location, Ashley lends her services to three of the area's permanent-makeup facilities, each of which boasts a full staff as well as an arsenal of medical-grade digital technology.
As skin ages and gets exposed to the elements, it begins to show the effects of time in a completely unique way for each person.

Similarly, the clinic's medical-grade facials and skincare treatments leave skin looking youthful and radiant, and injectable dermal fillers minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
